Mike suggests that a $10,000 prize be offered to anyone who can locate the real Jimmy Valentine.
Mike and Mousey (George E. Stone), a little chiseler who has attached himself to Mike, follow a clue to a small town.
Unknown to Mike, Mousey is out for revenge and kills two innocent men before they learn the identity of the real Jimmy Valentine.

Reviewer: Kodachrome - - July 20, 2012
Subject: A fun movie for a flick that sees two people murdered
I did like the streak of decency our not so squeaky clean hero develops. A bit corny, but it WAS 1942 after all.

I watched it without regretting having done so. I might have passed on watching it if not for the comments from the other reviewers. I agree with the consensus.

enjoyed it very much
Reviewer: Jonnie King - - March 6, 2011
Subject: Great Movie...Lots of Fun & Mystery
This is a fun movie to watch !

Dennis O'Keefe, cool as ever, aided by a Super-B Film Cast. Sort of a chopped-up copy that sometimes jumps ahead to the next scene...with no set-up. But it's well worth your time to watch it !

Both female leads (Ruth Terry: Adorable ! & Gloria Dickinson: Cool & Sultry !) are perfect !

Ya Gotta Watch This Film !

Subject: Great use of an hour
This was a lot of film for one hour, one very enjoyable hour!
Reviewer: tkFawcett - - March 5, 2011
Subject: Corrupted?
Is there something wrong with the streaming and download versions of this movie?
Reviewer: Dr Feel Rotten - - March 4, 2011
Subject: Well..unique story
it mixes a pretty darn good mystery with some comedy and a little sappy nonsense to find Mr Big..
Enjoyable flick even though the kid (girl) is played a bit to childish in my opinion, but this is 2011 and not 1942 so my opinion doesn't count there. ;)
